This is part twenty-two in the Must Tries Series that asks people in the Beijing bar, restaurant, and wine business to give us their recommendations. Last week, manager Alex Molina and chef Daniel Urdaneta talked about Modo and this time they talk about their first place — Mosto.
What is the “must try” appetizer and main at Mosto?
Urdaneta: Our starter Blue Crab & Avocado Causa (rmb95) brings your palette right into the heart of traditional Peruvian cuisine: it’s definitely a must try! As for the mains, a must order dish for our regulars is the Argentinean Matambre (rmb185).
What is the “must try” drink at Mosto?
Molina: The Mojito Martini (rmb60) that I created as a classy and feminine alternative to the original one… and it will not leave you with mint leaves between your teeth!
What are three “must try” items at other venues in Beijing?
Urdaneta: Jordi’s Bogavante Rice is irresistable at Agua! I also love the Terrines of Maison Boulud. And for my sweet teeth, Capital M’s Pavlova is the best.
